"A Scot owned bar that I frequent always sets a small pitcher of water next to a Scotch order. I asked about this and the bartender replied that a little water helps to "open up" the taste. So I tried the Scotch neat and then…"
"+1 on the Balvenie Doublewood - really fine scotch, even more so for the price. If you want something really special, try the Balvenie 21 year portwood is amazing.
With that said - I tend to prefer speyside scotches (honey/leather/vanilla/spice)…"
"My recommendation would be Glenlivet 15 Year Old French Oak Reserve.
You should be able to find it for around $50-$70 (It's $75 or so here in Canada).
An excellent bottle of scotch without breaking the bank too much.
Be sure to pop back in…"
"Agreed. Go out and try some first. I didn't like scotch until I tried some 18 year Caol Ila. It's extremely smoky...kinda tastes smoked. That very prominent smoky flavor somehow eased me into the scotch taste."
"First do you like scotch? If not don’t blow your money.
My general rule is that they need to be neat, single, legal, and preferably old enough to drink themselves.
To translate that.
Drink it straight, no ice or water in the…"
"I'd recommend Gragganmore as it is my personal favorite. That said. I'll add my voice to those who say that unless you particularly like scotch, spend your money elsewhere, like on a good Irish whiskey (Jameson). They cost less and…"
"David—congratulations on your graduation! Engineering is a tough slog, so yes, that accomplishment deserves a special celebration. And on the roof of the eng building! I like it!
May I recommend the 12 yr Glenlivet. Its…"
"+1 on bourbon. Without breaking the bank, a few great ones are Buffalo Trace, Blanton's and my favorite, Woodford Reserve.
If you must get Scotch, try Johnny Walker Black Label. Very smooth. Not too pricey.
Another alternative is a French…"
"I'm almost 6 years out of law school. I didn't have a plan for 6 years out while I was in law school. I guess I figured I'd go to a big firm, work really hard for 10+ years, make partner, and keep working hard. That…"
"There generally is respect for those contributions. Where it gets hairy is when Team American says things like "we've been bombed by some guy from Afghanistan so we're going to invade Iraq and drone Pakistan and also do some…"
""I also think today's lack of appreciation from the people of many countries we have aided in the past has also greatly to do with the now wide-spread adapting of anti-war/non-violence beliefs and movements by current generations that are…"
"When I had my beard, I never used a beard oil. Just a normal shampoo/conditioner when I showered kept it soft and in check. It's a few months gone now, so I can weigh in on the aftershaves as well.
Personally, I cannot stand original Old Spice.…"
"How do I delete all my posts from the sex group. I'm interested in continuing with the group, but was harangued incessantly by Jack Bauer there-seems like a really mean fellow who brought his shit into that thread on me. Seems…"
"I've not personally found a need for beard oils - though it may be i've just never found a good one.
Just keep your beard conditioned, and trimmed (and combed).
For aftershaves, I've a big fan of Royall Bay Rhum. Classic, and…"
"I still think she wants to watch her BF bang you. She's luring you in but, when it comes time to get down, before you realize it your prospective threesome will have turned into an actual m-m twosome with her on the sidelines, cameraphone in…"
